WITHER INTEGRATION. Read the NST article here.
So the MCA thinks if the government shows a billion-ringgit commitment towards Chinese schools, the votes (for MCA) will return. I have a question. Did the DAP give RM1 billion to the Chinese schools? Do they have RM1 billion to give?
I hope Muhyiddin can see where this is going. Yes, this will lead us nowhere. To integrate our young, we need to
Satu Sekolah untuk Semua or national primary schools, but we can't allow a further disintegration of Malaysians. We certainly can't allow this shallow thinking that (and I'm quoting Liow the MCA deputy president): ""Once the Chinese community can see a concrete plan for the future of the Chinese schools, I'm sure that the votes will return."
We can't talk about the future of our children in terms of how many votes you can get in the next general election!
Integrate the schools, integrate the children. And for heaven's sake, go back to the use of the English language as the main teaching medium. Bahasa Malaysia is the first and national language, now and forever. Make it a language of unity, not a language of science or maths, which it isn't and can never be. In an integrated school system, pupils elect a third language (after English and BM). And that means every Malay boy and girl must learn either Mandarin or Tamil. Again, integration.
RM1 billion for Chinese schools to keep MCA alive? Say NO, Najib.
